1824 and departed this life at the home of Mrs. Ben Sellers, Wednesday, April 7, 1920, aged ninety-six
years and four days. She was one of twelve children all of whom are dead. She married Joseph Glass,

"She united with the M.E. Church at the age of twelve years.
"Happy was she when surrounded by her relatives and friends.
In her home there was always a
welcome for her dear ones. On many occasions large family reunions were held in her honor. The
responsibilities of life were only a means of grace to her. She reached forward to the goal with the Lord
as her Shepherd.
"Funeral services were held at the church at Wilmington, conducted
by Rev. W.E. Fisher. The floral
tributes were beautiful. A large crowd, more than could be seated, paid their last tribute at the service at
1:30 o'clock. The pall bearers were John Glass, Perry Canfield, George Baker, Louis Baker, Charley
Baker and Gatch L. Baker."

I have a Amor L. Bruce b. Nov 8, 1847 d. Jun 5, 1925 married
Elizabeth Meyers on Feb. 20, 1883.
Elizabeth Meyers was born April 3, 1856 and d. Mar. 16, 1935.
I do not have parents on Elizabeth Meyers but Amor L. Bruce parents
are John Bruce b. Nov 7, 1804
Dearborn Co. Indiana d, Nov 10, 1870 married Jane Ross April 25, 1841 Janes parents were Amos L.
Ross and Eleanor Shumaker. Janes sister Alcie Ross married Adam Bruce, Johns brother.
John Bruce parents were Amor Bruce and Catherine Flake.
Catherine Flake parents were Adam Flake b. 1750 Switzerland and
Elisabeth Stuff (Stough) born 1763
Germany. They were the first settler in Dearborn County. Catherine was born Sep 12, 1785 in PA and
died Dec 23, 1848 in Wilmington, IN. Amor b 1777 in Scotland died July 9, 1857 near Wilminton, IN.
Amor came to IN from Kentucky in 1798 with his brothers James, and Henry. Census records of 1850
give PA. as his birthplace but starong family tread8tio in at least four Bruce lines is that he migrated
from Scotland with father and 3 brothers.
I hope I picked the correct Amor Bruce, there were several of
them all related to the elder Amor Bruce,
even a Amor Flake.

Looking for information on this man born supposedly in 1797 in Ohio
died in Dearborn Ind in 1864. Married a Sarah
Reed or West. Does anyone know? Who was his mother?
Perhaps someone else has worked on this family and can help us.
ANY info on ANY of these KIDS appreciated.
Thanks, marie, iowa
BETTY, also interested in BENJAMIN SELLERS born ca 1798 OH and living in DEARBORN CO, IN in 1830.
He probably was in IN in 1826 by dau's birth.
He had land, but, we don't have copies of land deeds.
We don't have any Wills.
I don't believe we have listed any CIVIL WAR?
or EVEN a possibility of War of 1812?
Do YOU have any of this info/documents to share?
Which child do you connect to and did they stay here in Dearborn
Co., In or Went where?
Did this Sarah (Benjamins last wife) have an obit?
When/Where did she die?
I don't have Dearborn Co, In marriages after 1850. Do You?
We have the census .
We have a couple of Benjamins kids that came to Ia.
We have the SELLERS discussion group to share info with.
Please send what you can.
THANKS for sharing SELLERS.
Dear Marie, I can't answer your questions asI was doing a pedigree
friend. What I have is in roots web world connect in Sellers-Dey. the url
is below. i have no other data than what is on web. I will tell my friend
to get on Sellers list if she wants too, Thanks for your interest. I will
share this note with her. She may reply. You may puy this url on your
Sellers or Dey list. Rememberr I did most of this from web-no primary data
But, I miss Seeing this BRUCE connection = probably first wife? of BENJAMIN
SELLERS 1798 OH?
I see the obit on a BRUCE living with a Benj SELLERS in 1920's
CAN you seen us the Link to the BRUCE family?
YES, they can join SELLERS group OR they can just write me and I'll
forward info on to our SELLERS
and we post our documents on our SELLERS web pages contributed by them.
THANK YOU for sharing.
I show an Elizabeth Bruce-no children or parents. Married in
other data. Why it did not show up I don't know.
BETTY, Thank you for your time and info and I realize its Not even
This isn't a pedigree search that you Charge others For?
Its a Free Search doing for a Friend?
The Other Party has not contacted me.
They can email me direct = firstname.lastname@example.org
Info still goes to our SELLERS group and web pages.
I realize many like doing it this way.
A little more work, but end result is same.
OR if they feel more comfortable sharing with you, thats fine, if
the time to send on to me.
MAINLY, we are interested in tracing SELLERS families = where they came
from and went = many went with us from the same area and sometimes it helps
DO they or you know WHO these people are? =
Haven't posted the 1920 IN census -
don't know if this would be Benjamin Sellers 1836 IN, son of Benj SELLERS
1798 OH or a younger child?
ANY HELP appreciated on ANY of these families.
ANGELINE BRUCE appears to be here on the 1880 census. But, I didn't
the BAKER family.
Mainly interested in the BRUCE/SELLERS connection. Will try and fill in
with any info we have IF I know what we need!
Can they Share a few more connections of families?
Thanks for Understanding,
Betty Harris has passed along your notes about the Sellers, and I
do have some info to add to yours. I do have the line back to John
parents of Benjamin, born in 1797, but I can't find where they came from. Yes, Benjamin's first wife was a Bruce, and her entire family is listed
under the Flake family, as her mother, as I remember, was a Flake (no offense).
I will have to dig out that material for you, as it's somewhere in my files, and doesn't come readily to hand. But I am copying and sending to
you the evidence that does come readily, and after the June planting season I will get into those files.
You know, we all have our daily routines, and since I have a big garden, I have to attend to the planting right now.
You live in Iowa? I guess Several of Benjamin's children settled in Iowa rather early. My grandfather was Benjamin's last child, Enoch, who
homesteaded around North Platte, Nebraska in the late 1880s. They had a rough time with drought and economic problems and retreated back
to Indiana after they proved up the claims. Later they went to Kansas, and my father, born in 1891, grad from high school in Great Bend. They
ended up in Emporia, as successful farmers. But there are no progeny named Sellers. There were only 2 sons, Enoch and William, only one had
children. My father's only child was a girl--me. Too bad.
I think Benjamin must have been quite a guy.
Please send me a postal address, as these records I have for you
are not on the computer. Betty is trying to make me literate with
postings, but I'm better with a hoe and spade than with a program.
Sincerely, Catherine Angle
